Today’s top NFL DFS picks: Buccaneers vs. Cowboys – Wild Card Round – Jan. 16

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Dallas Cowboys in our final super wild card match of the weekend.

The winner of this contest will travel to San Francisco next Sunday to face off against the 49ers.

The best quarterback picks

Cash Games: Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys (DraftKings $15,600, FanDuel $16,000)

The Cowboys’ offense has played at a more consistent, higher level than the Buccaneers’. Dak makes more sense than the cash game play.

Tournaments: Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (DraftKings $15,000, FanDuel $15,000)

Will Tom Brady turn back the clock again?

The best running back picks

Cash Games: Ezekiel Elliot, RB, Dallas Cowboys (DraftKings $11.7K, FanDuel $12K)

Tony Pollard is the more talented defender but Ezekiel Elliott takes over the goal-line work. Give me Zeke by the nose.

Tournament: Leonard Fournette, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (DraftKings $10,800, FanDuel $10,500)

The Buccaneers’ running game was idle all season, one of the worst rushing attacks of the season. The best way to attack a fierce Cowboys defense is to run the ball and get involved in the game action passing game. Expect the Buccaneers to trust veteran Leonard Fournette over rookie Rachaad White in the playoffs.

Wide receivers and tight ends

Cash Games: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Dallas Cowboys (DraftKings $15.9K, FanDuel $14K)

CeeDee Lamb has to be the cash gameplay in this game for me. My gut tells me the Tampa Bay Buccaneers front seven will play football Monday night, limiting the Dallas Cowboys’ ongoing game. Expect the Cowboys to open up more offense than usual in this case.

The Dallas Cowboys offensive coaching staff did a phenomenal job moving CeeDee Lamb through the formation, causing matchup problems for the opponent. It would be amazing if CeeDee Lamb didn’t come to play a big spot on Monday Night Football.

Tournament: Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (DraftKings $13,800, FanDuel $11,500)

Chris Godwin has been the most consistent weapon at Tampa Bay since returning from injury in September. Some DFS players will look at this pick and shake their heads and scream for Mike Evans given the star performance we saw from Evans two weeks ago in winning the NFC South title.

I expect the Cowboys defense will focus on Mike Evans and try to take him away with Trevon Diggs, their top defenseman. Tampa Bay will likely need to focus on a dink-and-dunk approach with the pass attack underneath, featuring Chris Godwin and his strengths as intermediate dividers.
